[ARCHIVED] Korean War Armistice Observance

Korean War Veterans Association North Carolina Chapter 265 will honor Cpl Jerry Kirt Crump with a Memorial Observance with full military honors at his gravesite on Monday July 27, at 12:00 noon, the 56th anniversary of the Korean War Armistice.

Jerry Kirt Crump was a North Carolina native who received the Nation's highest Military Combat award, the Medal of Honor, for his heroics during the Korean War.

The 1950-53 Korean War ended in an armistice on July 27, 1953, with neither side able to claim outright victory. A peace treaty has never been signed.

The public is invited to join the family at 12:00 noon at the Mt Zion Methodist Church cemetery in Cornelius, NC for this ceremony.

If traveling north on NC-115 or Old Statesville Rd, the church and cemetery are on the right at 19600 Zion Ave. If you take exit 28 off I-77, go east 1 mile then turn right onto NC-115; the church will be 1/4 mile on the left.

Please join the Chapter and the family in this observance.

Carl Johnson
Chapter Secretary
